One of the advantages of siting my vegetable garden in the centre of the donkeys’ field is that it creates a natural ‘circus’ and encourages them to run around the field for exercise. The vet came last Saturday to do the anti-parasite treatment for them. Rubi certainly seemed to be affected by worms and she had seemed very slow in her movements. She refused to go for a walk recently too. After the treatment she seems to have perked up. The race around the field is great fun, but as seen in the film, I nearly got knocked over!
The braying at the beginning of the video was added on later. The only braying comes from Morris usually, and that’s not much more than a glorified squeak. Interesting to see Matilde fussing over Rubi’s foal Morris at the beginning of this sequence, while her own foal Aitana trots along behind.
